ActionTrip is our hero on this year’s GC Leipzig 2007. While most of the game networks seem to have ignored Blizzard booth when it comes to interviews, videos and general anything, Actiontrip scored a interview with Jeff Kaplan about World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. Read the full interview
ActionTrip: How important will the 5-man stuff be in Lich King, do you plan on expanding that segment?
Jeff Kaplan: It’s very important, and for Wrath of the Lich King, we’re gonna do just as much in the terms of instances as we did in the Burning Crusade.
We also want to do more with 10-man instances because those are very popular with the groups who can get 5 but can’t get 25 (players), so we plan to have more instances like that, just like Kharazan.
And, also, this is something we haven’t really talked about, so this is somewhat of an exclusive for you guys; Sunwell Plateau, which is an upcoming patch just before Wrath of the Lich King, we’ve announced that it’s gonna have a 25 person raid instance. We will also be doing a 5 person instance which will have both Normal and Heroic mode. (So, after Dire Maul, this is the first 5-man instance that will be coming in a patch – 2Lions)
